It depends on what you are trying to do. High reps and low weights are good for training muscle fiber types for endurance, and low reps high weights will train muscle fiber types for strength. The best weight training is to do a combination both, do a pyramid routine as it will work out the different muscle fiber types in your body. Uninformed people do not realize that the human skeletal muscle have two major muscle fiber types, fast twitch and slow twitch. You need to workout both types of muscle fibers.
